PATH OF MIRACLES The Seven Life-Changing Principles That Lead to Purpose and Fulfillment Samuel Rodriguez
Just as Christ's resurrection from his empty tomb happened not far from where he had been crucified, our victories usually happen close to the place of our most difficult circumstances. And just as Peter and John found folded linen placed intentionally where Christ's head and feet had lain, so can we find guideposts in our own lives' journeys. The goal: to recognize what God has placed throughout our journey in order to guide us toward fulfilment.
Taking the story of Jesus and the empty tomb as his basis and inspiration, Reverend Rodriguez explains how these life-changing principles can be learned to create a richer, transformed life.
PATH OF SYNCHRONICITY Align Yourself with Your Life's Flow Dr. Allan G. Hunter
Synchronicity has often been explained away as pure chance, coincidence and luck. And yet for millions of people over the centuries these seemingly random events have been greeted as meaningful and people have chosen to act upon the intuitions that they had about these events. C.G. Jung felt that synchronous moments were those when we were most powerfully in touch with the Collective Unconscious, tapping into the wisdom of all mankind - if we choose to hear it.
The first part of this book offers a way of seeing synchronicity anew, observing how it appears in 3000 years of literature and myth. The second part gives practical instructions about how we can remain free of the snares of the ego. If we know how to recognise the mind-traps we can train ourselves to avoid them and grow our compassion at the same time.
This resource is a supremely practical guide to solving a difficult problem; the question is not: what am I supposed to do? Instead it is: what does the universe need me to do?

The first story in this book is Jackie Waldman's own -- the self-described charmed life -- until July of 1991, when she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. It took years, but eventually she came to understand that a person with MS is only part of who she is.
Since her diagnosis she's done a number of things, including publish the Courage to Give series. In this most recent addition to the series, Waldman has collected stories of 24 men and women living with MS, who have extraordinary lives, who've gone way beyond slogging through every day, who've found the courage to do new things or old things in new ways, to make the lives of those around them -- sometimes tens of thousands of those around them -- so much better.
In these pages, you'll meet Alicia Conill, an M.D. who continued her medical practice for as long as she could, and then founded a revolutionary course called The Disability Experience, so that health care workers know what it's like to live with disability.
You'll also meet Anthony Zaremba, who almost lost his job when his employees thought his shaking hands meant he was drunk or on drugs. His work is with community gardens and making one in Brooklyn wheelchair accessible. There's Loia Feuchter, who started a knitting circle that does philanthropic knitting. There's Dwight Riskey, a senior VP of Frito Lay, who organized a big team to raise money for MS. There's David L. Lander, better known as Squiggy from "Laverne and Shirley," who hid his disease for years. But now he's an Ambassador for the National MS Society.
